The rules are the same if you’re stopped at traffic lights or queueing in traffic.It’s also illegal to use a hand-held phone or similar device when supervising a learner driver or rider.
I ask but one question of the INSURERS. (1) If a driver has a mobile unit in his/her hand, does that make the Insurance invalid?
I know from personal experiences, with this being a Law of Strict Liability, that means you have to have a God on your side to escape sanction, that the Law is not being enforced? Therefore, surely, the police have the Power and the Duty to remove the vehicle from the offender. The facts that they do not do so only reinforces personal knowledge that the Police are badly served by their legal experts?
It surely becomes incumbent on the Courts to remove forever the misguided idiocy that Drivers/People have a Right to drive, without concern for others, on our overcrowded highways!
The facts that the Courts deem children's lives, and those of their Guardians, are worth only two and one half years penal sanction is derisory and insulting to the victims and their grieving families.
If my argument is tainted by irrational prejudice, I give no succour to those who cannot see the folly of their attitude to the mindless killing of children on our roads. If you think I have gone overboard, then try defending the video shown to the Court and asked, by the families of the victims, to be made public?
If the picture above does not made you angry, you should not ever have a Driving Licence.
